Halo Infinite has been revealed to the world, and while the campaign gameplay has divided fans, it’s still looking to be one of the most exciting shooters we’ve seen in a while. Perhaps most exciting of all is the news that Halo Infinite won’t only support two-player local split screen, but also up to four players online.
The news comes from head designer at 343 Industries, Jerry Hook, who took to Twitter to explain more about how the game will play once it’s in our hands later this year.
After some confusion surrounding the campaign hit the internet after the Xbox Games Showcase, Hook tweeted: “Hey everyone I saw some reports of campaign supporting 4 player Split screen for campaign and just want to correct. Halo Infinite will be supporting 2 player split screen and 4 player online co-op for campaign. Sorry about the confusion.”
Glad to have that all cleared up!
While Halo Infinite wowed many fans of the longstanding franchise, a number of people weren’t too thrilled with the game’s visuals.
The above screenshot from the gameplay reveal had gamers talking due to its…well…ugliness. It’s an ugly screenshot, let’s not beat around the bush. However, the image has sparked a debate between gamers as people wrestle with the pros and cons of expectation versus reality.
While many gamers praised Xbox for showing off a realistic look at their game, others criticised the appearance considering this is a title headed to next-gen consoles as well are current.
One Twitter user said: “If it isn’t ready, don’t show it. Xbox is launching a brand new console in November. “The most powerful console ever” and yet, this is how Halo, arguably the most important game for the success or failure of it, looks? That’s on them. Full stop.”
